For a start, when I go to post an image, the limits on the management window are all 100 kb. Why isn't that simply enforced? Or changed?

Because that's for uploading images. If it's hosted somewhere else, there is no size limit.

Found another option to deal with this.

On another forum, running vBulletin Version 3.6.5, in the User Control Panel, under Options & Thread Display Options, they have the option for Maximum Width & Maximum Height.

Might be worth looking into.

See post 28. I don't think I can control what people hotlink to.

From what I understand about the feature I just mentioned, it controls inline image width/height. I'm working on clarifying this right now, and will let you know what the response is.

Not sure about the technicals, but in any case, auto-resizing may not be such a great idea. It encourages people on ultra-fast connections to go ahead and hot-link a pic even if it's absurdly large. Sure, it will be forced into a small rectangle, but you may end up with a lot more multi-megabyte images to download.

What?? No. That's crazy!

P.S Please don't install any image auto-resizers. It's very lame. If someone is purposely posting large images as part of a page widening technique maliciously they can be banned. Other members can be reminded just to not post them.

Sending an IM to every offender is not a real solution for this problem, just as it isn't for other "netiquete" issues that are avoided by preventative measures at this and other forums.

Truly huge photos are wasteful and stupid and easy to ban -- LOTS of other sites do it, for the sake of users as well as server loading.
Even with high speed its annoying.

Especially when people quote respond.

I love pic threads, when they have an application. Look in mountain biking for some of petes threads of pics of trails etc. Absolutely stunning (makes for great backgrounds too) A nice warning in the title works too. I would hate for the pics to be tiny.

I would hate to see auto resizers too. Its a tough call, cator to the people with low bandwidth or let those of us who have it, have access to stunning pics in proper size. I think you need to look at the averages. How many people have dial up vs high speed. I betcha most of the active users have high speed.

I'm on a T3 line at both home and work. I hate large size images because it throws off the formatting of the page.

I see nothing wrong with posting a small image (600 width) as a link to an off-site full-size image. People can still see the image and get the general idea of what it is, and can click the link and view it full-size if they wish. Using one of the resizing options I've posted about just make it easier on all of us.

Maybe you should install the plugin for YOURSELF and not recommend it to force it down everyone else's throat. Ok? If this does get implemented, at least let registered users control whether or not images are automagically resized via options.

The courteous thing to do is to post normal-sized images that won't inconvenience the vast majority of users using typical monitors.

The plugin has to be installed server-side, dumb*****, otherwise I'd already have it and would be telling people where to get it & how to install it, because I'm helpful like that. If it does get installed, I'd recommend that the default be set to off. My understanding is that registered users (both paid & un-paid) would have the ability to make the setting changes in the User Control Panel. Unfortunately my keyboard doesn't work (I'm typing this with the On-Screen Keyboard), so I can't get/post a screen cap.
